Falkland Islands, 50 Pence (Victoria 100th Anniversary) 2001 Silver Proof
In 2001 the Falkland Islands issued a special silver crown to honour the 100th-anniversary of the death of Queen Victoria. You have the crowned bust of Queen Victoria on one side in the style that was used on colonial coins of the time. The Obverse has the crowned bust of H.M. Queen Elizabeth II. We have never see this silver proof crown before, it was part of the inventory we bought from a retired coin dealer. It is quite a handsome piece and comes complete in a protective capsule. We don’t know what the mintage is but we believe it is very low. We guess on today’s prices that the mints are charging we should be asking over £80.00 for it. But we bought it right and we are going to sell it right. We have 200 pieces in stock, the first 100 are £39.50 each and once they are sold the next 100 will cost £49.50 each.
